This Week's Top Web Comedy Video: What Is the Biggest Rock?


The Onion's TED parody series strikes again, this time with a savvy exploration of the biggest rock on Earth. And if that's not big enough for you? My friends, don't worry. We'll just bring a bigger rock from space to Earth.


That's just science, people.

I really wanted to like these Onion TED parody videos. I really did. Unfortunately, not one of them have I found funny enough to actually laugh.

They tend to drag on well after the joke has already been told. It's like they don't realize the joke is already over in the first half of the video and they just keep barreling forward.
